Day 3 in Beijing: Forbidden City and The Temple of Heaven

Since I just got here, and my brother had some friends in town, we all decided to do the touristy thing and went to the Temple of Heaven and the Forbidden City.  I can try to explain, with words, the grandeur, beauty, power and how awe inspiring these buildings are but I’d rather let the pictures speak for themselves.

These first five are from The Temple of Heaven:
